Calcium-induced outgrowth of astrocytic peripheral processes requires actin binding by Profilin-1.


Peripheral astrocytic processes (PAPs) are highly motile structures that are strategically positioned in close proximity to synapses. Long-lasting PAP retraction in hypothalamus is known to alter synaptic transmission. The PAP motility is likely to be actin-based because they are known to contain actin-related proteins such as Ezrin. However, the link… (More)
